Unless the soreness is extreme, definitely workout. Doing the same workout can have the effect of releasing the tightness in the muscles but it could also intensify the soreness. I would do 1/2 the same workout and add some cardio. Cardio always helps me relieve soreness.

You've gotten a lot of good advice and I will add a "it depends." I took a barre class a few weeks ago and felt some discomfort in my hamstring during one exercise. No big deal, BUT it still bothers me! I'm taking it easy with that muscle area and using a roller ball on that particular spot

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Don't assume your freedoms are assured.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is a common response to doing an exercise that is unfamiliar - even if it felt easy at the time.

Blood flow to the muscles actually helps the recovery process. So light exercise is definitely a good idea. And using the ball will help you get used to.... the demands of working with the ball. But definitely keep it LIGHT.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Check this out on DOMS: (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) I usually find Tylenol, ice, and continued light activity gets me through. Mostly its just wait it out though--LOL!

You might take a rest day, if that feels right, or (as you suggested) you might do a different type of workout that doesn't work those sore muscles as much. Pick one, and see how you feel afterward. Then you can use that to help inform your decision whether to rest or work out next time.

Sunday I worked out with a yoga ball. Even though its two days later Im really feeling the effects in my muscles. They are very sore from using them. Strange, the exercises were so easy and im feeling the burn in my abs especially. Should I do another ball workout today or take another rest day and do light walking?
